Where it all began
Having put her daughter through remedial lessons, psychiatric evaluations, medication and various different diets, Theri still needed to find something that would actually work without stressing her daughter out even more… Something that was “invisible” to her daughter but yet had very visible results!
It was suggested to Theri that she bath her daughter in Epsom Salt, as studies have shown that bathing in Magnesium Sulphate seems to benefit children with ADHD and Autism. When Theri bathed her daughter in the salts the results were phenomenal and things very quickly started to improve with Jessey. Until one day, Jessey realized that the salts going into her bath were actually a “medicinal bath” and she refused point blank to bath again…! Things in the house turned back to unbearable. So Theri decided to find a way to disguise the “peas and carrots” – and she managed to turn the salts into a brightly coloured, fun and fragranced BUBBLE BATH! Little did she know that within a few months her home-based recipe would become a sought after product, that she would move her production from her kitchen at home into a commercial factory unit, and that Kiddy-calm would end up a patent protected, trademarked and internationally sought after product having been awarded Winner of both Most Innovative and Most green products in 2013 and Theri was also a FINALIST for 2014 Sanlam & Business Partners – Entrepreneur of the Year.
Theri’s many and varied early life experiences became the basis for her positive attitude, and taught her the skills that would stand her in such a good stead: NEVER GIVE UP, ALWAYS DREAM, PERSEVERE and you WILL achieve. With that in mind, Theri turned dreams into reality! The year 2012 was given the title of JOURNEY TO SUCCESS, and culminated in the incredibly exciting honour of Theri winning the ENTREPRENEUR OF THE YEAR AWARD 2012 (by the NSBC). The business has documented its phenomenal success throughout the past 13 years through media such as Facebook, moms’ forums and public and corporate workshops and seminars.
